success with these operations? >> they have a high percentage of success charlie. they actually -- people with hip replacements do very well. the question that i think a lot of people should ask when they're getting the hip replacement or thinking about it is what is my surgeon's percentage of complications, how many times has the surgeon had a problem with an infection of a hip replacement. >> how do you find out the information? >> there are several web sites that are being -- the government and the administration has done to help this. but it's better to just ask and -- >> special t's interesting what -- it's interesting what you say on cost and selection, the incumbency is on the patient. >> it is. this is the most sobering part, as well. the burden is left to us to try to figure it out. when i take care of patients and they ask me about costs, honestly sometimes what the cost is. >> i know the study was just on hip replacements. >> right. >> i imagine this may span a lot of different kinds of surgeries.

so we need a new man for these times. that's why it's an important and exciting time for the church. >> latin america makes up the biggest council population. i keep hearing many latin americans saying this is our time. how likely is that do you think? >> i think every single cardinal has a possibility. we've been surprised twice over. first with a pope from poland, a great pope john paul ii and pope benedict xvi, great pope from germany. both were surprises. certainly in latin america, there are enormous challenges and enormous opportunities. large numbers of the faithful who are desserting the church. we need to bring them back. in fact, pope benedict had a trip scheduled to brazil this summer for world youth day. that's going to be a significant moment. so, certainly the cardinals will be looking to north and latin america, too as one of the candidates. >> quickly, i don't know if you

8:07 am
term you were less influential leading up finally to the disagreement over skutlibby. is that a fair statement? >> well, i think i probably had more influence in the first term. i think my experience was more relevant in the first term but the second term, obviously, he didn't put in his time. i offered at midterm to step down if he wanted to have somebody else. i said mr. president, you know if you need to make a change here, if you think you can get somebody who can do good work for you or if i'm carrying too much baggage, you know, i'm not going to stand in your way. the first two times he didn't take me seriously. the third time he did, he went away, thought about it and came back and said no you're my guy. >> you can hear more of the

in a tough economy, retirement can seem like a pipe dream. but the now cover story in "money" magazine reveals the six secrets of retirement and offers advice on how to act now. money senior writer donna rosato is with us. welcome. >> thank you good morning. >> what is the advice how can you secure your job until retirement age? >> well, a lot of folks think their plan for retirement if they don't have enough, is just to work longer. in fact, there was a recent study by transamerica that said more than half of people 50 and older said that they would retire at 65 or later. but the reality is most people don't even make it to 65. the median retirement age is 62. what you want to do is make sure you're constantly focusing on showing how valuable you are at work. that means showing that you --
8:19 am
you're constantly learning that you're taking on new responsibilities. and another thing that we advise people is find a champion. someone who's going to be singing your praises when there are job cuts or promotions or you know, layoffs. >> find a way to make yourself indispensable i always say. >> exactly. >> when it comes to retirement and how much money do you need, how much do you need to lead a good life, how much do you need to lead a comfortable life when it comes to retiring? >> that's the question everyone has. how much do i need to save. we have a specific number for that. 16.6% of your annual income. the reason it's so specific is there was a research detailed research out of american college which trains financial planners. and they studied marketing conditions going back to the 19th century to figure out how much is a safe savings level that would help you sustain your preretirement income and post retirement income. it was 16.6% of your annual income. >> to keep you living to the manner in which you've become accustomed. >> that's right. that does include employer matches. what you want to do is the
8:20 am
average person who participates in a 401(k) only puts in about 8% to 10%. that's not enough. you want to make sure you're doing more than maxing out your 401(k) saving in other taxable accounts like iras. then you can get there. >> we talked about that yesterday. >> yeah. i was thinking what payments should be prioritized? >> well, a lot of people think when they get into retirement, i'm going to pay off that mortgage. certainly gives you peace of mind. but in today's low interest rate environment, it may not actually make the most sense. if you're paying less than 4% on your mortgage, if you can -- you can take that money and put it into retirement investing, you could make even conservatively 4%, 6%. that may be a smarter way to spend that savings. >> okay. what if i'm in debt? how do i deal with the debt issues and save for retirement? >> here's something that might be a little controversial. but you don't want to enter retirement with a lot of high priced debt. what we're talking about are credit cards, maybe student loans that you took on for your kids or auto loans. you want to pay that off. you might be paying 8% 10%, 12%
8:21 am
on. that here's the controversial part -- maybe for a while you want to step back your retirement savings and put this money into paying down that debt. if you're paying 12% on debt that's going sap your retirement. nay off as soon as you can. >> donna rosato. thank you. from saving your money to saving your strength. a ceo of an energy project explains why you might be more productive just by taking it easy. she'll explain how that works. you are watching "cbs this

8:31 am
productive? >> by aligning with the body's rhythms. by moving rhythmically between spending and renewing energy which is what the body is meant to do. and when you -- as i said when you're working, you're 100% focused or at least you're finding opportunities during the day. and you're weather you're not you're valuing -- and when you're not, you're valuing renewal. are you being more focused on it. >> this resonates with me. naps are the key to my ability, you know to be fresh and hopefully productive. naps. >> without question. you know charlie, and given the life you have, i would imagine that you wouldn't be here without them. but in the 30-minute nap and during a workday, you should never take more than that. you'll fall into the deeper stages of sleep. >> never more than 30 minutes? >> never more than 30 minutes. in a 30-minute nap you can recover enough energy to bring as much as you would get from a full night of sleep for the subsequent oner to hours after that -- one or two hours after that nap. they're incredibly powerful and

equally undervalued. >> i took a nap at 8:00, 8:00 to 8:30, so i would be fresh to prepare for the next day. >> without question. and if we can get organizations like -- the energy project is out there trying to get companies like apple and google and coke and genentech, a range of progressive thinking companies to adopt practices which is a tremendous shift from focusing on the idea that you wanted to get more out of team recognizing that the best way to do it is to invest more in them. meeting their needs. >> hurst has a nap room, i worry if i go in i won't come out. you talk about working in 90-minute intervals. >> a spectacular -- i've been talking about this subject with charlie rose since 1995. it's a spectacular way to, again, align with the rhythm of the body. the body moves from high arousal into fatigue every 90 minutes. if you work in that way what you do at the end of 90 minutes,
8:33 am
you recover and renew, and you're treated go back into the fray at the end of those 90 -- of the rest after the 90 mints. >> some women may be saying this sountsds like it's easy -- this sounds like it's easy for men. it's harder for women to do that. >> because you've got to put yourself back together afterward or women just have a hardy time napping? i never heard that before. >> do they? >> no. i don't believe there's any sort of physiological evidence that women have a harder time. >> i know more men that nap than women. i've had women tell me, you know, i wish i could do it. >> yeah. >> absolutely. >> i'm one of those women. >> you know, what's extraordinary is i wrote this piece on sunday in "the new york times." you know relax, you'll be more productive. it's a measure of and a window into the despair and the exhaustion people are feeling that 48 hours later that's still the most e-mailed article on "the new york times." it's amazing. >> and was one of the -- one of the most important things you say about being productive is ritual. everybody who says that,
8:34 am
establish a ritual of when you're working, when you're napping, when you're exercising. >> if you can schedule whatever the activity -- the more you have to think about something, the less likely you are to do. the more you ritualize it the more you put it at a specific time, and n a specific place on, specific days, the more likely are you to repeat it. if you have to think about something, you're in a lot of trouble. >> yeah. >> somebody once said about exercise, it should be like breathing. you know, you should do it automatically. >> all the things that you don't have to think about to get done you should automate in your life. >> you don't have the issue of sex here do you? >> this is interesting. i'm told never to talk about sex, religion, and politics in ll the work i do with organizations tell me. >> all right. >> we generally ask that on this show. >> it's rhythmic. that's the farthest i'll ever go. >> okay. >> rrhythmic. got it. >> not the first word that comes to mind for me. >> all right.
8:35 am
>> wow! >> we're veering off. this is scary. >> my fault, sorry. >> thanks for asking. >> i am curious about the word but i'll move along. >> thank you, good to have you here. >> good to see you tony. there was a time when it was common for air ships and blimps to fill the skies of america and europe. changed with one simple word -- hindenburg. more than 75 years later, bill whitaker shows where air ships could be taking off again. i've never seen anything that looked like this. there isn't one. this is the only one in the world. >> reporter: it looks like a big balloon. but engineer tim kenny with worldwide aros of tustin, california, calls this the evolution of air transport. >> you can carry it inside? >> yes, the payload would be lifted from the bottom of the vehicle and stowed inside the vehicle. >> reporter: it's called the aeroscraft. the 2270-foot-long 100-foot-tall prototype of the actual air ship. that will be twice as big, designed to lift tons of cargo. >> this here is a scaled down
8:36 am
version of our 66-ton vehicle. >> reporter: 66 tons. >> 66 tons. >> reporter: that's a big payload. >> 66 tons of payslowed a massive payload. >> reporter: harkable not just for what it can carry but where. >> there is no place this vehicle can't go. we can go anywhere there's no ports, no runways, it could be the rain forest. it could be the arctic. we can land on snow, ice, water. >> reporter: all at speeds putting traditional truck or ship cargo carriers to shame. 100 miles per hour from new york to los angeles, little more than a day. air ships seem so practical some wonder why they ever went away in the first place. air ships first graced the skies back in the 1920s and '30s as surveillance platforms cargo carriers even passenger luxury liners. that all came to a tragic end in may, 1937. >> terrible. this is one of the worst catastrophes in the world. >> reporter: it's believed a spark ignited the volatile
8:37 am
hydrogen gas that kept the hindenburg afloat. 36 people perished. so did the future of airships. >> i think the future of hindenburg is there. >> reporter: igor pasternak wants to erase the image. he's designer and ceo of aeroscraft. his creation is lifted by nonflammable, lighter than air helium. it's not just bigger than earlier airships but far safe safesafe -- far safer, he says. he's not alone. dozens of companies are working on next-generation airships. lockheed martin designed this to haul heavy equipment to remote parts of the globe. but the aerospace company couldn't find funding to mass produce it. >> we're very close. probably closer than we've ever been since airships started being operated to building something that the commercial world can use. >> reporter: aviation analyst graham warwick says the only funder with deep pockets and
8:38 am
technical know-how to get new airships off the ground is the u.s. military. last august the army and aviation giant northrop grumman took to the skies with this $517 million aircraft designed as a surveillance platform, loaded with cameras. with the afghan war winding down, it now sits in a hangar. its further funding in doubt. >> one of the concerns is that the military will lose interest before the commercial world can pick it up. this is the gondola. >> reporter: the aeroscraft got off the ground with just $35 million from the military. but engineer tim kenny is convinced it will stay afloat because of its unique technology. >> this will control everything. so if i want to put the payload on, i just push a button and it automatically will adjust the vehicle speed >> it will be lighter if we add the payload or become heavier if we remove the payload. >> reporter: that means no need for ground crews long mooring
8:39 am
ropes. it stays stable in high winds. >> we're ready to go. >> reporter: tim kenny took us for a short ride. i hear the engines, but i don't feel a thing. >> no. it's so smooth. you're floating. just like sitting in a balloon. >> reporter: 30 feet off the hangar floor and into the record books. have you taken it up this high before? >> no. a first. you're the first one. >> reporter: all right. the aeroscraft is waiting for faa approval to take a test flight outside the hangar. then this california crew is betting the sky's the limit. for "cbs this morning," bill whitaker tustin california. >> nicely done bill. he's a near mythical figure in the world of organized crime. a new book reveals the inside look of whitey bulger's life. we'll talk to one of the authors and former fbi insider john miller coming up.
8:40 am
8:41 am
8:42 am
i'm sure by now you know i got an informer in my outfit. cop. the police department -- i'm not sure. >> jesus christ. you sure it's not the fbi? >> yeah. ain't the fbi. >> that is jack nicholson in "the departed" playing a mob boss loosely based on whitey bulger. bulger ruled south boston for decades before spending 16 years on the run. he was finally captured in 2011. a new book reveals bulger's violent life and his ties to the fbi. it is called "whitey bulger: america's most wanted gangster." and the manhunt that brought him to just. we're here with kevin coe, co-author, and john miller, a former fbi assistant director. good morning. >> good morning. >> the trial's coming up.
8:43 am
you believe that whitey wants to make this what? >> he wants to change the narrative. to this point, everybody's told his story for him including us. what he wants is to refute two points. he says he was never an informant for the fbi. he says he never killed the two women whose murders are among the 19 he's charged with. those are the two things he most wants to refute. you say it's about getting even. he's not even going to get acquitted you say. >> there's no way that guy's going to walk out of prison. but i think he feels like this is his last chance. as he calls it the big show. he didn't go out in a blaze of al gory in santa monica. he wants to go out in a blaze of glory in the courtroom. >> how could he be an fbi informant and kill people while he's an fbi informant?
8:44 am
>> you might want to ask the fbi that. >> i'm looking at the fbi insider. how could that be, john miller? >> i think he wasn't just an informant. whitey bulger was this rare class of what they categorize as top echelon informants. these are informants who are supposed to have extraordinary access. when you sign the deal you say you won't commit crimes if you do, you'll tell the fbi. this gets lost because there's a long trail of paper between the handler of that informant, in this case, a corrupt agent named john connelly. fbi headquarters and the department of justice. i think what the handler says with a wink and a nod to the top echelon informant doesn't get all the way back there. now, others would argue that you know headquarters had to be blind not to understand it. >> well, it's the old line too that you never should have the local wise guy being worked by the local cop. >> yeah. >> in this case, it -- it's --
8:45 am
>> they had rape. >> yeah. i mean -- they had a relationship. >> yeah. i mean they went back. the people who were supervising this relationship, they'd -- the fbi transfers people in every three or four years. john connelly could sell this to any guy who came in from out of town. they didn't understand boston to begin with. they certainly didn't understand southy. >> john bulger, right, his brother claiming that fbi agents who supplied information to him gave him immunity. what do we know about that? >> i think this is -- this is a fascinating crux here because his claim is going to be that i was never an informant. which then raises the question then why did they give you immunity. right? >> how is he going to have it both ways? >> well he's trying to have it both ways. i think he's trying to create confusion out there more than anything. the statement that you're talking about, nora what he was saying with his brother during a visit to the jail at first it seemed crazy. i always say that whitey's crazy like a fox. so he's got something up his sleeve. >> that's what interests me.
8:46 am
i mean whether jack nicholson captured him in terms of his personality or not. >> well, i think whitey would look at that and say i was never that out of shape. that was really --e was a vain guy. still to this day doing 155 pushups in his jail cell at 83 years of age. >> and how mean was he? >> well, i think the record speaks for itself. i mean this is the -- my co-author, shelly murphy and i really tried to capture for lack of a better term the humanity of who this guy -- i think he's been a one or two hief- two-dimensional character for all these years. he's a guy of incredible contradictions. he aspired to the ozzy and hair yet lifestyles. he was out doing crime at day. then at night he would insist on being home at 5:00 or 6:00 for i sit down meal with his paramour and her children. >> and telling them to do the right thing. >> don't be me. stay in school. study hard. save your money. stay in shape. don't hang around with bad people.
8:47 am
they're like, huh? i mean that's the contradiction. this is a guy that is charged with incredibly cruel violence shooting people in the head. when they had to put a dog down in louisiana, he couldn't look. he wept. he's a guy that seems to have more feelings for animals -- >> did he think that he would ever be caught? >> i don't think he did. >> why was he called whitey? >> because as a kid he was a tow head. >> blonde hair. >> yeah. >> how was he able to be the master manipulator who managed to have the mafia on this set of puppet strings, the fbi on that set of puppet strings, and control over the neighborhood? >> well, the guy is charismatic, john. i think anybody who's powerful or good at what they do, whether it's politics, the law tv, it's -- are you charismatsic d. people like you. kevin weeks, his protege said -- >> charlie, you could be running -- >> kevin weeks said to us, if whitey wanted you to like him,
8:48 am
you would like him. and he would not give up until you liked him. >> i was fascinating. i thought, god, i wouldn't mind meeting him. >> now one -- >> we can arrange that. >> thank you kevin. thank you. we've got to go. i was fascinated by him. thank you. "whitey bulger" on sale now. tomorrow, we're talking with carry underwood -- carrie underwood. she brought home grammy gold. that's tomorrow. this is "cbs this morning."

for me the best was the monsignor talking about that lightning bolt. that it was from -- >> a sign from god himself. and here's the video of it. incredible. happened just hours after the pope resigned. >> and then from pope benedict to dick cheney. >> yes. >> valerie jarrett. tony schwartz on how to be more productive. >> all of us need more naps. that's the rule. the takeaway from today. that does it for us. up next, your local news.
8:52 am
8:53 am
>> your realtime captioner: linda marie macdonald hi, everyone. good morning. 8:55. i'm frank mallicoat with your kpix 5 headlines on this tuesday morning. police in vallejo would like to know who shot five people killing one overnight. the victim who died was one of two men found in the garage of a home on humboldt and eastwood streets about 8:30 last night. about the same time, three other people went to a hospital
8:54 am
with gunshot wounds apparently from that same incident. this morning, two suspected bank robbers are in an east bay jail. police found the suspects at a motel in newark following a holdup in fremont yesterday afternoon. one of the men surrendered shortly after officers arrived on the scene. it took about five more hours though for negotiators to talk that other suspect into giving up. a maritime safety group may adopt new rules limiting ships from sailing under the bay bridge during foggy conditions. this follows an accident last month when an empty tanker called the overseas reymar struck the base of the tower and now ships may be barred from sailing under the north part of the bridge when visibility is half mile or less. how about your forecast? let's check in with lawrence on what looks like a pretty good week, huh? >> yeah, some very nice weather ahead as we see these temperatures soaring well above the average. today patchy fog coastside, hazy sunshi in the valleys.
8:55 am
30s and 40s now. this afternoon, 50s and 60s. next couple of days high pressure really builds in some of the temperatures maybe slipping into the low 70s by friday. looking good right throughout the weekend. we are going to check your "timesaver traffic" coming up next.
8:56 am
